It is the night for statements regarding Dolphins G.M. Jeff Ireland’s unfortunate interview question to Dez Bryant.
Dolphins owner Steve Ross had his say earlier, and the NFL commented on the matter for the first time in a statement to PFT released by spokesman Greg Aiello.
“Steve Ross’s statement makes clear that the Miami Dolphins intend to address this matter promptly in an effective and thoughtful way. To his credit, Jeff Ireland recognizes that he exercised poor judgment in asking an insensitive and inappropriate question of Dez Bryant. He took the proper step of calling Dez Bryant to apologize and then making that apology public.”
We’re a little surprised this story has taken off like it has. It still has some legs left with Ross promising to look into the matter personally.
